Google bashing always amazes me. I’ve been using Google services for almost 15 years now. I haven’t died yet.
While I am very happy that you are still alive I choose to try to use products that do not profit off of the tracking and sale of my personal information, YMMV.

Hard pass on Chrome, sooooooo many other choices that don't involve Google.

My least favorite part of Siri isn't the fact that she sucks at everything, it's the horrendous, ear-bleed-inducing noise that happens when you ask for her while driving in the car over Bluetooth.

Lmao like you don’t use Google search and YouTube.
I have not used google search in many years, I'm guessing at least 10, I use DDG for everything. I use youtube but only in private windows as to minimize what it can see.

You may not care about them collecting, tracking and selling YOU but I do and actively try to minimize their chances of collecting, tracking and selling ME.
